Where Were You December 9, 1968?-- Part 2

GOING UP THE COUNTRY--  CANNED HEAT--  Brand New.
TOO WEAK TO FIGHT--  CLARENCE CARTER--  Follow up to his "Slip Away."  Greg Allman would cover it in the 80s.

SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL--  ROLLING STONES--  From their brand new album, just three days old.  It was their last full Stones album to feature founding member Brian Jones.  AM radio didn't know what to do with the album, but the new FM channels did, if you could find one in town playing Rock.
WHO'S MAKING LOVE--  JOHNNY TAYLOR--  A great Blues Brother cover.  John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd had their ears glued to the radio as kids.

QUICK JOEY SMALL (RUN JOEY RUN)--  KASENETZ-KATZSINGING ORCHESTRAL CIRCUS--  Its lead singer was Joe Levine, also lead singer of the Ohio Express on "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy."  Also lead singer on Reunion's "Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me."  (Some great Bubble Gum Music.)
I CAN'T TURN YOU LOSE--  CHAMBERS BROTHERS--  Taking an old Otis Redding tune.  The follow up to "Time Has Come Today."  Years later, the Blues Brothers would be all over that one.  (Just like Aretha taking his "Respect" song and making it her own.)

After All, It Was You and Me.  --RoadDog


WHAT SHE SAYS AND WHAT SHE MEANS:  Sure...go ahead = I don't want you to.
